The Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA) and Hero MotoCorp had collaborated to launch one-of-its-kind EV Technology Expo.
The Expo was held on 08 and 09 June 2022 in Jaipur.
Inaugurating the Expo, Arun Jaura, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Hero MotoCorp, said “In line with our Vision – “Be the Future of Mobility”, we are constantly working towards developing newer technologies that drive the mobility segment forward. The EV segment is a crucial part of this journey and we are glad to be collaborating with ACMA to engage with the supply chain ecosystem and provide them with an apt platform to showcase their latest EV technologies. We are delighted that ACMA has stepped up to be the game-changer of e-mobility along with us not only in India but also progressively, overseas.”
“This Expo is an extension of our commitment to ‘Make in India’ and promote the country as a global manufacturing base for future technologies. This ensures India’s self-reliance, reduces dependence on imports and naturally provides wider e-mobility options for everyone. Sustainability is a pillar of our strategy and e-mobility will be an important lever in our journey,” Jaura added.
Speaking on the occasion, Vinnie Mehta, Director General, ACMA said, “We thank Hero MotoCorp for collaborating with ACMA for the EV Tech-Show and inviting ACMA members to participate in this unique event. Our combined efforts are bound to give impetus to localization of e-mobility solutions in the country and would become a model for the industry to follow.”
“With our government declaring net-zero carbon emissions by 2070, e-mobility has indeed caught the attention of the policymakers and consumers alike in India. The transformation is very pronounced in two-wheelers and three-wheeler segments. As we move towards mass adoption of EVs and electrification of the fleet, it is an opportune time for ACMA members to contribute to the creation of a robust EV component ecosystem and ACMA is committed towards this endeavor,” he added.
ACMA regularly organizes tech shows for OEMs, these have been largely in the conventional ICE domain.
This is, however, the first time, that ACMA is organizing a tech show dedicated to components of Electric Vehicles (EVs).
More than 35 auto components are participating in the EV tech show for Hero MotoCorp and have put on display their latest technological innovations and products in the realm of motors, motors & controllers, inverters, DC-DC converters, battery technology, BMS, thermal management system, charger & charging systems, telematics & remote diagnostics, vehicle tracking systems, e-braking, energy recovery and digital stimulation technology, to name a few.
